    Morning routines - daily letter

    My daily letter is basically a note to the students that we read together. I often make printing mistakes (a capital letter in the middle of a word for example), spell a common word wrong, leave endings off words or beginnings, etc., and the students help to correct the letter as we read it.

    A sample letter might be

    Good morning class. ToDay we r go___ to learn
    about the letter G. We are going To do addition in _ath and we will play _ath Bin__ too. ThiS afterNoon you will be go____ with Mr. P. for gym. Let's have a wonderful d__.

    Depending on how much time you have will influence how much "work" you put into the letter.

    For my calendar time we do the following
    Put up the day and count how many days we currently have had in the month. For the first month or two we say all the days of the week and months. Later the student who does the calendar for the day will choose so many days or months to point to for the students to say what it is.

    I also have a 100 chart and each day we add one new number to the chart. We put a straw in for each day as well and then group them every 10 straws. We count them as well to see how many days we've been in school and of course look forward to the 100th day of school.

    After recess during my math time we also do the weather for the day. I have to wait until that time because it's too dark in the morning to tell what the weather will be like. We also graph the morning temperatures for the month.
